Looking at doing this in a couple weeks. I know it will be a long day, planning to go light and fast. With that in mind, I'm curious about current conditions from anyone who has been in the area or viewed any of this route--particularly interested in Gash Ridge (Blanca) and the North Ridge of Ellingwood Point--any snow? Any need for crampons/ice ax?
Any route beta, current conditions, photos etc. appreciated!
